1 - India's 10-wicket victory against Pakistan in the semi-final in Potchefstroom is the first by such a margin by any team in knockout matches at the Under-19 World Cup. Before this, there have been two nine-wicket wins in the knockout games - one each by Australia (2006) and South Africa (2014).

4 - Number of ten-wicket wins for India in U-19 World Cup matches. All four wins have come in the last two editions - two in 2018 and two at this year's World Cup. India had defeated Japan by 10 wickets in their second match of this tournament.

11 - Number of consecutive wins for India in U-19 World Cup matches. Their last defeat was in the final of 2016 edition against West Indies. Since then they have won all their games - six in 2018 and five in 2020.

156 - Yashasvi Jaiswal's average in this tournament. He has scored 312 runs in five innings and has been dismissed only twice. At present he is the highest run-getter of this year's edition, with scores of 59, 29*, 57*, 62 and 105*. His average is the highest by a batsman in an U-19 World Cup tournament (minimum 300 runs scored).

9 - Batsmen to have scored centuries in the semi-final or final of U-19 World Cups. Incidentally, the last five batsmen to do so have all been Indians - Cheteshwar Pujara (2006 semi-final), Unmukt Chand (2012 final), Shubman Gill (2018 semi-final), Manjot Kalra (2018 final), and now Jaiswal. Overall, six of the nine batsmen who have scored hundreds in the semis or final of U-19 World Cups have been Indians.

176* - The partnership between Jaiswal and Divyaansh Saxena - it is the second-highest for any wicket for any team in knockout matches at the U-19 World Cup. The only bigger stand was 177 by Imam-ul-Haq and Sami Aslam for Pakistan against Sri Lanka in 2014 quarter-final. For India, it is the second-biggest opening stand at the Under-19 World Cup and the fourth-highest opening partnership in U-19 ODIs.
